“Remote location, cannot expect much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Very average hotel considering the remote location. Rooms were clean, hot water and amenities were available, food was acceptable, breakfast was continental, even it had Wi-Fi, slow but available to check mail etc.

This hotel was selected as there are few options in this city. The room was average, clean and adequate for our needs. We spent little time in the room. Dinner and breakfast were adequate. The pool area was the highlight of the hotel.

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Gate 1 tour. Our first floor room was way in the back of the property. The room was shabby and very dated. There was no safe in the room, and slow spotty wi-Fi. The beds were very hard and very low to the floor. The shower was very high to get into, I needed help from my husband to get in and out. The toilet bowl was dirty, and the TV was an old style one. The dinner was not interesting at all, breakfast was no more than a continental breakfast with some unidentifiable lunch meat. I had cheese and a roll both mornings. The wild cats walking around the dining room enjoyed the meat. This was by far the worst hotel of our tour.

My room was very small. Service was 'just okay'. The deal breaker for me was you had to BUY water at breakfast. For me, this was a big deal. All hotels on our Gate1 tour up to this point provided bottled water at breakfast. They know we tourists can't tolerate their water but they don't provide potable (for us) WATER? Very tacky in my opinion and not acceptable in a hotel that advertises itself as 4 star. I cannot recommend this hotel at all. Our tour guide apologized profusely for this hotel....even before we got there...saying it was not good but the best there was in Quarzazate. Hmmmmmmmm.

Correct address is Avenue Moulay Rachid BP 150, 45350. Good bones. Finding room kind of confusing as room numbers starting with 5 are up a flight and room numbers starting with 6 are on the ground floor. Exterior doors. Room temperature was set at about 90/ 30C upon arrival. Air conditioning didn’t work so turned off HVAC altogether to cool down room. Use the remote to control heat and be patient as it seems to take forever for fan to turn on or off.
Large bathroom with plenty of space to place all your bathroom stuff. There was a bathtub, but there was no hot water on day one or day two, just warm, so I took a shower which was better for water conservation anyway. Limited outlets. Poor wifi. Buffet breakfast and dinner satisfactory. Please see my photos for more room details. If you found my review helpful, please click on “yes.” Thanks.

Gate 1 tour stop.

Room was small, hard to find at first, beds too near the floor. Not a great hotel room.

Grounds were great. The pool area nice, the music from the bar pleasant. The dining OK but nothing special. The balcony views for sunset nice. The lbby had a very heavy smell of smoke from guests smoking all over the place, especially the bar.

I am not at all interested in being in contact or onlne while travelin - it is my escape from life, why mess it up with WiFi - but many on the trip lived for every stop where they could go back home through their devices. Unlike others in this list, my friends were complaining that while the hotel had WiFi, it onl worked in spotty places if at all.

My only real complaint was that there was no hot water in the morning because of an "equipment failure". A fellow guest who was staying here for a few days said it breaks every morning and they give the same excuse each day - but that there is an excess of hot water in the evenings. So shower before going to bed - not in the morning. I suspect they need a larger water heater.

But - this area has been udergoing tough times. A number of neighboring hotels have closed due to lack of tourists. So it could be worse. So I'll give it a three.

Best part of the stay - a short wander downhill to the square in the evening. A lively place full of families and friends. A grea place to shouf. Buy a bag of popcorn for 4 DHM and sit and watch the children drive their little cars and play soccer while parents shop and talk. A great village feeling.

I stayed here for two nights as part of a Gate1 tour. The room was not fancy but was fine and, most importantly, it was clean. There were free wifi throughout the hotel although it was sometimes rather slow. The breakfast buffet was a little on the sparse side but the food that was available was fresh and tasty. Dinner buffet was good.
